Seeing a black person in Japan is rare; seeing a black female is even rarer. For the two plus years that I have been living in Japan, I haven't made a single friend with skin my shade or darker. I've made quite a few Caucasian and Japanese friends; more Japanese than the former.
Luckily, when I moved up to my new location last month, I was told by one of my superiors that a female Jamaican was living in the same city. I quickly asked her to give that person my contact and here we are now.
Taken earlier this month at a friend's of a friend's friend BBQ.
My new buddy introduced me to two other female Jamaican friends of hers that live in neighboring cities. Wow, my friendship circle is growing!
(Ok, so I've been absent for a bit on here. Like I've mentioned before, work has been really draining!! I'll try my best to post more often though.)
